Been working serpentines/convergence lately. She's starting to get the idea! Need to keep working on jump commitment, had a few issues with that that I cut out of the video. But I'm really pleased with everything she's doing well, she's such a fun puppy.

Working some jump skills with Susan Salo's set point exercise. Height only 6-8" since she's still young, just want to get her thinking about jumping and using her body nicely. Still have work to do on this front, haha. But at least we finally have a useful sit-stay!



And beginning our attempt at a running dogwalk. Just intro to the planks with food to get her going through the poles. Will probably only do 1-2 sessions a week on this for a few months since again she's still young.

Chandra is beginning her journey to a running dogwalk! We'll see how it goes. :P My current plan is to train a running dogwalk for the straight/easy exits, and a 2o2o for the turns or exits I need to manage. So yes we will be working on a 2o2o as well, and if the running dogwalk totally fails at least we'll have the 2o2o.

Only planning 1-2 sessions a week of this for now, and we may have to take a hiatus for a while when it comes time to raise the planks since she is young. Winter weather will probably hamper our training anyway.

Some work on commitment and lap turns with our verbal wrap cues (dig and check). Winter project will be increasing Chandra's fluency with the verbal cues.

Cschmidt88 and islanddog like this.

Some perch work! Not directly agility stuff, but good body awareness exercise for agility. Starting with independent rotation, then offered movement into heel/side positions.

Just catching up--how did I miss this?
I need some homework that doesn't involve full agility equipment, so it's also instructive. Thanks. Will be following.

All of my other dogs were GSD's, sadly missed, moving forward

Lots of stuff to do without much equipment!

-body awareness (perch, ladder, plank exercises)
-line ups on both sides
-backing up
-2on2off on a plank or object
-sits/downs/stands in motion (similar behavior to 2o2o with no equipment at all!)
-wraps around a cone (or tree, or barrel, or whatever)
-handling on multiple cones to work on wraps and commitment
-wobble board and tippy plank
-exposure to different surfaces
-classical conditioning to noise
-shadow handling
-delayed reinforcement (example, do some shadow handling and then run to the reward placed elsewhere instead of carrying it with you)
-collar/harness on and off
-weave through legs
-left and right spins

Just some ideas!
